bone of the soul

earthy dark
below ground

no crystals here
no cave
no tight spaces

we have a freedom

i cannot see
it takes another to
show to me

talk of sea spray
early years
and the price of food
these days

tax on bags
and sculleries

language speaks of other days
small boys with
m box five
or something

back to the cathedral
where the book says
it is all for nothing anyway
talk about giving hope away.

a spiritual reduction, a sad deduction
from some who should
know better
